Identify the causes and root causes. Identify corrective action(s). Implement the root cause correction(s). 4). Key fact RCA directs the corrective action at the true root cause of the problem.

5 Block diagrams Another secret to good diagnostics is the ‘block diagram’ approach. Most systems can be considered as consisting of ‘inputs to a control which has outputs’. This technique means that complex systems can be considered in manageable ‘chunks’. It is similar to the black box method but just a different approach. Many complex vehicle electronic systems can be represented as block diagrams. In this way several inputs can be shown supplying information to an ECU that in turn controls the system outputs.

11 represents the main supply wire from the brake switch to the point where the wire ‘divides’ to each individual stop light (the odds say the fault must be in this wire). For the purpose of this illustration we will assume the open circuit is just before point ‘I’. The procedure continues in one of the two following ways: One ● ● ● Guess that the fault is in the f rst half and test at point F. We were wrong. Guess that the fault is in the f rst half of the second half and test at point I. We were right.
